Are there some examples of long, real-world documents showing the variety of text and mathematical fonts now available? With unicode-math there are now many more fonts for text and mathematics, both commercial and public-domain, than before. It is easy enough to find short examples, but what I would like to see would be different versions of a long document (e.g., an article or chapter from a book), with each version set in a different font (e.g., Lucida, Minion-Math, Latin Modern, Tex-Gyre, Mathtime, etc).

This type of question seems to come up frequently in this forum and others and I will answer it myself. However, I would also like to see other examples too.

I have posted several versions of a couple of book chapters at the following website: http://empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/gv219/aofd/fonts/ There you will find the same 100-plus page document typeset with Lucida, Minion-Math, MathTime, Cambria, Tex-Gyre and others. Comments, and other examples, would be welcome.

Also, as an update, for the final version of the book I ended up using Minion for text, Cronos for sans serif, and Minion-Math for math, and you can see this at http://empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/gv219/aofd

    May I ask which font combination you went for in the end?

    The first edition was written using Lucida for text and maths. I'm now preparing a second edition and will either use Lucida again or Minion plus Minion-math from typoma.com, which I like as it is elegant, readable and very comprehensive.

  • @lblb Thanks for pointing that out. The link has moved to empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/gv219/aofd/fonts I've updated the answer, too. Also, as an update, for the final version of the book I ended up using Minion for text, Cronos for sans serif, and Minion-Math for math, and you can see this at empslocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/gv219/aofd
